The Lookout car park and facilities at Swinley Forest remain closed. Please do not drive to visit the forest.
Please note …
Your safety, the safety of our staff and other Park visitors is our upmost priority. So please, once again, don’t forget, social distancing remains – keep two metres apart from people outside of your household.
It might be that on occasions some of our team, working hard to keep the Great Park open for you, may ask you to move on, as an area may be too crowded. Please respect their request and be kind in your response, as they are only doing their job to keep everybody safe.
We are constantly reviewing the situation and should Government advice change, or public safety be compromised, we will not hesitate to impose further closures or restrictions.

From William the Conqueror using the landscape as a hunting ground, to Queen Victoria entertaining on the shores of Virginia Water – our Royal connections remain strong today under the stewardship of HRH the Duke of Edinburgh, the current Ranger of Windsor Great Park.
